Phil and Fiona were both very kind and responsive, have helped us with all information necessary for us to prepare ourselves for the trip, they have arranged for car pick up and waited for us at their apartment. The apartment was exactly what it was shown on the pictures, amazing location few minutes walk from Sagrada Familia in a beautiful area of Barcelona. They have helped us throughout our stay with information relating to the city, transportation, issues realting to kiddies (we needed a stroller) etc. They were wonderful hosts.
Absolutely perfect - location, amenities, communication. Would definitely stay here again.
Where to begin with this apartment. First off, Phil and Fiona were very communicative after the booking leading up to check in. They were very communicative and understanding of our arrival situation. As for the apartment itself. It was clean, spacious and very comfortable for four large college students. The bathroom kitchen and rooms were all very well equipped as well. The location was absolutely perfect. Far enough away from most of the nightlife in Barcelona to be quiet at night but also close enough to have that option, this spot right near La Sagrada Familia was a tourists dream. Overall, I would highly suggest this apartment as it adds another dimension to the Barcelona experience.
This was a fantastic flat! It was very clean and spacious, located in a great part of town and close to the metro. Phil and Fiona were very accommodating - always quick to reply to emails & texts. You should definitely stay here!
The hosts were easy going and very welcoming. Communication was great before and after we arrived. The description of the place was accurate and the place was really tidy and clean on arrival. The neighbourhood was really friendly and the apartment was in a fantastic location with a great view of the Sagrada Da Familia. The metro links are also less than a five minutes walk which was super convenient.
I've heard mixed reviews of Airbnb before I decided to opt in but certainly in this case, i'd definitely recommend staying in this place. It doesn't take much to be of assistance via phone when needed but it can go along way in making your experience great.
Thanks again guys.
Great stay, everything was clean and proper. Phil was very friendly and flexible we could have let our luggage in the flat, because the flight back was at 8pm. The flat is well positioned in the City near to Sagrada Familia. Supermarket and restaurants are in short walking distance. We would recommend this flat every time.
Thanks Fiona and Phil.
personal welcome by host, flat looks as shown on pictures, clean, great location
